My first proper Oolong. This tea makes you realize how important the smell is to the taste of the tea: I usually drink tea from a thermos, which basically eliminates the smell. Without the smell, you taste smooth cocoa, and a bit malt and honey, butterscotch. Opening the lid, however, reveals the raisins and apple pie scent on the nose, rather a sweet finish. The tea is quite soft and smooth, makes me think of grandmother’s milk-and-honey.
Flavors: Butterscotch, Honey, Malt, Raisins, Red Apple
